Quote of the Day

by Tom Bozzo

"There is only one sure means in life," Deasey said, "of ensuring that you are not ground into paste by disappointment, futility, and disillusion. And that is always to ensure, to the utmost of your ability, that you are doing it solely for the money."
–Michael Chabon, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

I would add: ... and for the right amount of money.
 
Well, quite. How would I afford that Cayman S otherwise?

:)
 
Excellent quote and an excellent book. Though I hope it is only a truism and not a decision heuristic in wide use.
